Concealed Carrier Stops Robbery at Subway Restaurant in Texas
|Incident at a Glance|
|# of Suspects:||1||Shots Fired:||None|
I wonder if Subway will become the next national chain targeted by Moms Demand Action following the events at a San Antonio, Texas area Subway restaurant yesterday.
A concealed carrier who observed a robbery occuring inside of a Subway restaurant took action. According to KSAT:
Police say around 11 p.m. a man walked into the restaurant, and demanded money and threatened to shoot.
Police say a man in his car saw the attempted robbery and went in with his concealed handgun. Police say the suspect ran away without the money and didn’t hurt anyone.
The suspect remains at large and no physical description is currently available.
We don’t currently have information on the type of firearm used, except to presume it was a handgun due to the fact it was being carried concealed. The identity of the concealed carrier has also not been released.
This incident is the most common type of defensive gun use. That is, one in which no shots were fired and no one was hurt. Despite this being the most common type of defensive gun use, these incidents are often not included in statistics about defensive gun uses. Many of these statistics and studies focus solely on justifiable homicides, which represent only a fraction of total defensive gun uses.
